We are raising funds to install some key new pieces of children’s play and educational equipment, to our existing children's playground in Pinner Village Gardens park. All the planned improvements will make it a more interesting and fun place to play and spend time and a social hub for local families and friends. This £4000 will pay for specific new play equipment that will be installed in the children's playground.

Why do we need to do this?

 Currently, the children’s playground is in a poor condition due to several years of semi-neglect. It is under-utilised by local families due to the limited facilities and it's rather run down appearance .

Who are we?

Our community group is  called  the Friends of Pinner Village Gardens and we our local residents who love and care for this super park. We have set up since 2015 and work with the local council to help maintain and improve the park for all the community. 

What are we doing?

We began this project by asking local residents, families and park users what they wanted to see in the playground. We are now working with Harrow council and playground equipment suppliers to plan then purchase new equipment to attract children of all ages and invigorate the playground area and make it an enjoyable and safe environment.

Other reasons

We feel that improvements to the playground will attract more families to the park in general,  encouraging the use of the wider park itself. this is a well panned and unique park which appeals to many difference users and their different activities. The park was created as a pleasure park in the 1930's and includes green nature areas, a wildlife pond, new adult outdoor fitness equipment, a climbing rock, a table tennis table and basketball area and new improved tennis courts.
